This Saturday I had another 'first' when an author interview was published on the Ether Books website. I hope I am not getting too big for my boots when I say that I hope this is the first of many interviews.
I felt like a bit of a dodgey salesperson when I was blogging about Ether in the past. It felt very odd to be talking about something that I couldn't actually see for myself, but not so now. Thanks to my gorgeous and very generous husband who bought me an iPod Touch at the end of December, I can now see the Ether App for myself at the flick of a finger.
I was interested in the idea of it all, but now that I have seen the app in action myself I am more impressed than I had expected to be, in all honesty. I have also downloaded rather a lot of stories. Whoops. I would like to recommend some of the stories that I have read and particularly liked:
Half-mown Lawn by Dan Powell
Tamagotchi by Adam Marek
A Lonely Life by Denyse Kirkby
A Fond Farewell by Trevor Belshaw
Diary of a Failed Erotic Novelist by Vanessa Lafaye
Red Bird by Ev Bishop
Kissing the Pavement by Kay Beer
That's probably enough to keep you going for now, but needless to say there are a lot of very good reads available on the Ether App, and a lot of them are available to read for free. If you browse by genre there is even a very handy 'free' section set up. It's well worth taking a look at.
